There are books that make you want to hug them as soon as you've finished the last chapter. "Shopaholic and Sister" definitely falls into this category! What an unexpected delight! Sophie Kinsella's done it again with this installment of the Shopaholic series. Hilarious and at times moving, "Shopaholic and Sister" is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs that had me hooked from the first page!

Becky was having tons of fun on her honeymoon, but when she gets home she finds her self in hot water. She has been buying furniture, clothes and art everywhere they went with a secret credit card and had it shipped home. Now Luke is furious that she lied and bought more stuff then the apartment can hold.

Becky feels forlorn until her father springs the news that she has a sister she never knew about. Becky is delighted, she is sure they will become best friends in no time. After all, they have the same blood! Unfortunately things end up far from her plan.

About the same quality as the rest of the books. Witty writing, interesting plot, infuriating heroine.
